spring is coming soon and I am planning to get ready to do some maintenance work on my '63 OTS. Before storing the car last fall I noticed a stronger than usual “tramlining” effect, basically at all speeds. I am driving my car with Dunlop RS5s for many years and I usually really enjoy how the car behaves with these tires so I know that “some” tramlining is normal.
Here is what I have done so far:
- Changed Tire pressure up and down. Had some minor effect but did not change the principal issue
2.Visually inspected the steering rack mounts (Metalastik, with wheels on the ground). These mounts are about 10+ years old. Did not notice anything wrong like excessive play though
- Tightened all wheels via hub cap.
Is there a recommended procedure about how to zero in on the tramlining issue? Reading through the archives I am not expecting to eliminate the tramlining effect but I wish I could reduce what I am currently experimenting. How about worn wheel hubs? Anything at the rear end as a source?
Any recommendation is much appreciated.
